Assistant Professor, Department of Finance
Teaching is a delightful adventure that allows me to participate in the development of competent young students.
Ozde Oztekin has joined the Department of Finance as an assistant professor.
Among her recent publications are two co-authored articles in Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis “Equity mispricing and capital structure adjustment costs” and “Leverage expectations and bond credit spreads”; and “Institutional determinants of capital structure adjustment speeds” in Journal of Financial Economics.
Dr. Oztekin also has two working papers: “Capital structure decisions around the world: which factors are reliably important?” and “How do banks adjust their capital structure? International evidence.”
She earned her PhD in finance from the University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida, and has three degrees in economics: a master’s degree from the University of Florida and one from Bogazici University, Istanbul, Turkey, and a bachelor’s degree from Bogazici University.
